We explain how to shuffle poker chips like a pro in the latest installment of our beginner poker strategy video series. If you see poker pros playing on TV they’re always shuffling their chips and they barely seem to notice they’re doing it. With this poker video tutorial, and a little practice, you’ll be able to impress your friends and inspire respect from even the most hardened poker grinders. First cut out two stacks of chips. Place your pinky and ring finger on the outside edge and use your thumb and pointer finger to squeeze the two stacks together. Now use your middle finger to pop the two stacks up in the middle and lift your hand straight up to shuffle the chips together into one stack. Don't squeeze too hard. Just prop the chips up in the middle and let them fall into place. Now, practice! PokerListings.com: Start your poker journey today.

Our latest Poker Basics beginner poker strategy video teaches you to bet and raise like a poker pro. We’ll also show you how to avoid common mistakes like string-betting, and calling when you meant to raise. Beginner poker players make a few common mistakes when they bet and raise for the first time in a real poker game. The easiest way to avoid most mistakes is to clearly announce your action before you even touch your chips. If you want to raise, when it's your turn just say “Raise”, then count out your chips and push them across the betting line in one clear motion. The easiest way to announce a raise is by saying the combined total of the original bet and your raise. If a player in front of you bet 500, and you want to raise an additional 1,000, just say “ I'll raise to 1,500”. Clearly announcing that you're raising will help you avoid common mistakes like string-betting and calling when you meant to raise. String-betting is when a player tries to bet or raise but moves their chips in with more than one motion. It's also considered a string-bet if you use the old movie line, “I'll see your bet … and raise”. String betting is against the rules and in both examples the first action is binding. Another way you can slip up and call when you meant to raise is by throwing in one large-denomination chip and not declaring raise first. Save yourself the trouble and clearly announce what you're going to do, before you do it. PokerListings.com: Start your poker journey today.
Hosting a home game is the perfect way to get started in poker but stack sizes, chip denominations and blind structures can be confusing for beginner poker players. In the latest episode of Poker Basics we give you our recipe for the perfect eight-person home poker tournament. We call for 5,000 starting stacks, four different chip denominations and 20-minute blind levels. If you follow the instructions you can expect this tournament to last roughly two hours, but you can tweak that by changing the stack sizes, or how long each blind level lasts. Just remember, simple is best, especially if you're playing with beginners!
